Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 9 September 2013

Movers and shakers on Monday morning's market


Heavy rain and squally winds have just passed over the Land's End peninsula...


and the market has a good selection of beam trawl, trawl, net and handline caught fish...


some of which get the measure of...


the man from Cefas rattling his light sabre...


like these convoluted conger...


Cornish hake...


all ready to be dispatched across the country...


putting the finest fresh fish on the nation's tables...


there's a good run of monk tails coming ashore...


as the grey morning skies lift...


the latest addition to the Nowell fleet, the Karen-N waits to go to sea...


looks like there's a few hours mending to be done on one of the Crystal Sea's nets...


there's still plenty of passing yellow-welly traffic...


bow shapes - the two inside boats sport their French flare contrasting with the rather bluff bow of the Scottish designed and built Charisma - possibly representing national characteristics...


one of the beam trawler's whose fish was on the Monday market...


the Newlyn Framer's Gallery opposite the fish market has a good selection of seascapes in their current show.
